Environment and social responsibility
Back to the water

Humans just like all living creatures, once came out of water. Water can be a source of strength and health for us. But in most places where we live, we are cut off from the water, even when it is near. Rivers are suppressed by industrial zones, concrete walls and wastelands, and the beaches turn into waste dumps. Many people do not even know where to swim near their houses.

The objectives of the initiative: Attract public attention to the problems of water bodies and ways to solve them; set an example of how to live in harmony with water today; build a responsible attitude of people to their own habitat.

Plastic Free

We launched this project in Austria in 2018, and we intend to expand it for the entire series.

Project goals: draw people's attention to the problem of environmental pollution with non-degradable garbage; develop new environmental habits and standards for doing business that creates less stress on the ecosystem.


is a social project that we are supporting since last year. It allows anyone to create a "deed" and dedicate it to solving a specific social problem, for example, helping a sick child or a disabled person. Thus, for example, funds were raised for the participation of children with disabilities in the World Swimming Championship in Mexico.
